Reminder: VA Must Elect George Allen

Via Sissy Willis on Twitter, Quinn Hillyer points out at AmSpec just how wretched an abortion is ObamaDon’tCare. In particular, the roots of the the Senate circumstances go back to 2006:

. . .the Washington Post had to succeed in its unprecedentedly and viciously unfair coverage of the U.S. Senate race in Virginia, both capitalizing on Sen. George Allen’s missteps (he ran a terrible campaign) and skewing the “news” relentlessly against him even when he didn’t make mistakes. Had he not lost by a tiny 8,805-vote margin, there is no way he would have voted for Obamacare, which therefore — cue the refrain — would have failed by one vote. . .even if none of the other, subsequent abominations (as we will discuss) were forestalled.

Read the whole thing, and bookmark it for reference.

Conversely, Kate Obenshain details what a disaster Tim Kaine would prove, if elected:

George Allen for Senate

Tim Kaine is just Barack Obama’s meat puppet. Let Obama and Kaine take their Wayland and Madame act to Vegas, or something.

    Remember, after Tim Kaine’s stint as DNC Chairman Obama figured Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was smart enough to do the job.

    It’s a sad comment on the times that Virginia conservatives are reduced to supporting Allen as the only alternative to Kaine.  Allen loves to spend like a drunken sailor and he has the charisma of a turnip, but — God help us — he’s all we got.

    You’re electing a Senator, not a next-door-neighbor. Can we drag you, kicking and screaming, onto the ticket? 🙂

    Well, I wouldn’t be the first dummy to run for the Senate, would I?

    Smitty, I thought that was you….I was present when Kate Obenshain provided this wonderful assessment of the non-moderate Kaine …… didn’t feel worthy to approach you!
